Meet Dr. Robert Nisson
– Dr. Robert (Bob) Nisson was born and raised in California. Dr. Nisson was always very adept with his hands as a child. While he was in Jr. High School, Dr. Nisson assisted his father, LeRoy Nisson, DDS, (who was a dentist to many movie stars, including Marilyn Monroe, Howard Hughes, and Ginger Rogers), by frequently constructing orthodontic models. Helping his dad in this way developed his interest in Dentistry.
Dr. Nisson attended high school in Granada Hills, California. Upon graduation in 1979, Dr. Nisson chose to attend Dixie College in St. George, UT. During the first year in college, Dr. Nisson was the Freshman Class president and participated in drama and theatrical productions. Between the years of 1980-1982 Dr. Nisson served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Alberta, Canada.
After his return in 1982, Dr. Nisson returned to Dixie College and received an Associate’s Degree in Science. Following graduation from Dixie College, Dr. Nisson attended the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah, where he continued to excel and work hard in school. Wanting to follow in his father’s footsteps, Dr. Nisson then applied and was accepted into the University Of Southern California School Of Dentistry. While in dental school, Dr. Nisson applied himself to his studies and enjoyed the clinical side of dentistry the most. Tooth Morphology and Dynamics of Occlusion were favorite subjects of Dr. Nisson. Frequently, you could find him carving teeth long into the night. Dr. Nisson was involved in politics in dental school and was selected as a student representative to the American Dental Association. This was a wonderful opportunity to travel to many cities and visit other dental schools and observe students round the country. Also, during his junior year at USC, Dr. Nisson had the privilege to be selected as 1 of 3 students who could perform sedation or twilight sleep on patients. This experience allowed him to become proficient to administer drugs to patients and help his patients overcome the anxiety of dental procedures.
In 1988 Dr. Nisson married and following his graduation from USC dental school in 1989, moved to Boulder City, Nevada. After one year, Dr. Nisson opened and established Warm Springs Dental in Henderson, Nevada. After founding Warm Springs Dental, Dr. Nisson was very pleased to have his former USC classmates and close friends, Dr. Timpson and Dr. Newton join his practice. Expanding by opening Anthem Village Dental has provided additional opportunity to serve the Henderson community.
Dr. Nisson lives in Henderson with his wife, Virginia. They have four wonderful children. He is very involved with his church where he currently volunteers as a Scoutmaster having achieved the rank of Eagle Scout himself. In his spare time, Dr. Nisson likes to water-ski, travel, garden, and landscape, take his son to USC games, and spend time with his family.
